The cause of rosacea is unknown. Several theories exist. Factors that can cause flushing or blushing may trigger flare-ups in people with rosacea.
These factors include:
- Very hot or spicy foods
- Sun exposure
- Extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold)
- Emotional stress or social embarrassment
- Rubbing, scrubbing, or massaging the face
- Irritating cosmetics and other toiletries
